A select group of local businesses received a special honor Tuesday. Winners were announced for this year’s Piedmont Business Ethics Awards.
An awards ceremony for nine finalists was held at Starmount Forest Country Club in Greensboro. Attendees included Greensboro Mayor Nancy Vaughan, Guilford College President Kent Chabotar and nearly 200 business leaders.
Established locally in 2000, the Piedmont Business Ethics Awards honors companies that demonstrate a firm commitment to ethical business practices in everyday operations, management philosophies, and responses to crises or challenges.

This year’s nine finalists are: Airsoft R Us Tactical, Anderson-Moore Builders, Duncan Exxon, Flow Automotive, Miss Jenny’s Pickles, Planet Fitness, Samet Corp., Spevco and The Soap Lady. The announcement was made by PBEA Judging Chair Ruth Petty.
